I need to import a large number of patents (e.g., all the patents by a particular inventor or assigned to a specific assignee) into BibTeX format. Are there tools for doing this?
I'm not interested in single patents or in approaches that do this one patent at a time, but in ways to import large batches all at once. In particular, I'd be interested in tools provided directly by online patent databases and repositories (e.g. the USPTO or the EPO).
